This product is great. I have use it for the past 7 years, with a lawn that slopes. Only issue I found if any is, it has to be reapplied in south NC. I apply once about 3rd week of Feb. and again when I remember in April. If not lawn look great until the effects I guess wears off. Then watch out for late May, June, and July. I will be picking crab grass by hand. When I live in OH, MI and IL I only need to apply this pre-emergent once usally end of March early April.

      Comments about ACE HARDWARE Scotts Halts Crabgrass Preventer (49900):

      This product works. Just follow the instructions carefully the first time, and be sure to apply at the right time... usually a 2 - 3 week window that is best. Outside of that, results may vary, but only insomuch as I feel the product eliminates ALL crabgrass when applied during that window. It's still somewhat effective outside that window. Also, if you have horrible crabgrass already showing, this product will knock it down but not out... just use the spray version later in the season, and the crabgrass will have been weakened enough that the spray will work on it. Then, the next Spring, you'll really see the benefits. By my third year, I questioned if I really needed to use it anymore... but I knew better, and I so I did keep using it. But that's how well it works. At that point, your grass should start really filling in those gaps, making it harder for crabgrass to take hold. I would recommend this, and I have... just two days ago actually. Follow the full step program and you will have people coming up to you to ask about your grass. It's not rocket science. P.S. I did not click "easy to use" because the grass has to be wet, but that's how the product works... so I couldn't very well say "difficult to use" either. There's a bit more involved with this application than any of the others, having to wet the leaves first, but if you do it right you will be amazed.

          In central PA, the summers get really hot and usually dry. This product worked wonders at preventing crabgrass. This was the second year and I definitely saw an improvement from last year. I highly recommend this product.

              I find this Scotts product to be far superior than others on the market. Upon application, it seems to do the job, as far as preventing crabgrass, which is always a problem for me. I would say that since it is specifically targeted for crabgrass, it appears to be stronger than other products. Because of its reliability, I feel that I have put up a strong defense against crabgrass when I use it, and feel satisfied that it is doing the job intended. Thus, I do not have to worry about the condition of my grass, and I feel safe that I have used a product of high quality.

                          I apply this every year according to the directions. It helps but I still get crabgrass throughout the lawn. I know this product helps with the crabgrass since one year I went with a company to apply organic fertilizer for me and my lawn was overtaken by crabgrass by August. I went back to this product ever since to help control the crabgrass. I wish it was more effective where it was applied.

                              This was the first year that I used this product to prevent crabgrass, which typically infests my lawn during the hot summers. I still had isolated areas, that were very small, but this was the best summer for my lawn. The lawn actually proliferated because it did not have to compete with the crabgrass. I will forever use this product as a pre-emergent crabgrass preventer. I highly recommend it; it will make your life of dealing with crabgrass so much easier.

                                The products works- sometimes. While there is a several month window over which the product can be used, it seems to me that it works best when used earlier as opposed to later in the application cycle. The product is also expensive. When used as part of four step annual application, it gets really expensive.

                                                        I took over this house and lawn last year and as spring turned to summer, found I had several spots of crabgrass. (Central FL) I used baking soda to keep it from spreading last year and sodded the few areas that were damaged in Dec. I knew the seeds were still in the ground. The middle of Feb, I applied my first application and a second, light, application about 2 months later. I have only found a few sprigs of crabgrass that I have pulled and this around edging and curbing where I have used a string trimmer and probably broke the seed barrier I put down. It works and I will continue to use it next year for insurance. Not expensive and does what is advertised.

                                                                The optimal aplication times for fertilizer are different than those for crabgrass preventer or weed killer. So don't use the bundled fertilizer/crabgrass preventer of fertilizer/weed killer products. Apply plain Turf Builder mid-March. Spray liquid Weed-B-Gone over entire lawn and apply Halts a few weeks later when the forsythias start to bloom (yellow flowered bushes). Two weeks later your neighbors will have dandelions and your lawn will be green. Apply second application of Halts (to control goosegrass)and second applcation of plain Turf Builder at the end of May.

Halts without fertilizer is needed to control dandylions and thistle in coastal lawns in early spring. Two or three applications starting in February work for me. Balan works also but is harder to find.

Only issue I found if any is, it has to be reapplied in south NC. I apply once about 3rd week of Feb. and again when I remember in April. If not lawn look great until the effects I guess wears off. Then watch out for late May, June, and July. I will be picking crab grass by hand. When I live in OH, MI and IL I only need to apply this pre-emergent once usally end of March early April.

After using another brand of Weed and Feed last year my yard was overgrown with weeds and crabgrass last year worse than ever! I got help through Scott's Help Center via phone and emailed them photos of the unidentified weeds in my yard. Due to the "off brand" Weed and Feed I used last year they made some recommendations for Scott's Bonus S Weed & Feed and some Halts Crabgrass Preventer and I'm seeing a huge difference this year! My grass is much thicker and the weeds are almost gone! Looking forward to Spring!!

Just make sure you apply in the seasonal time period as the product specifies for your region. This product is for serious control of crabgrass and with consistent usage you should no longer have problems. Another note, I used Round-Up Concentrate the first year ...then followed with Halts. I have not had to use Round-Up in the last 2 years, I apply Halts yearly.

I'd spend hours and hours trying to pull it out; regular weed killer has no affect on it. My sister told me about Halts and said to apply it in March, June, Sept. and December. The first year I did it, I noticed a tremendous improvement the following year. That was 3 years ago. I do it every year during those times now, have a great looking yard, and have passed the word around to my neighbors!

We had so much crab grass last summer that we thought we would try this. This year we have had a very small amount of crab grass compared to last year. I would recommend this product very highly!!
